Fantastic, Nsfw Look at ABCs Of Death 2! [Trailer]

2 September 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The bad thing with anthology films is that the quality can vary from short to short but that also happens to be the good thing about anthology films because if something is really terrible, it'll be over in just a few minutes and a new possible bit of awesome starts. That was certainly the case with the first ABCs of Death and that's likely also going to be true of the follow-up but judging from the opening of the trailer, the sequel is already looking like all sorts of awesome.

The line-up of directors this time around is nothing to scoff about and includes the Twisted Twins (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary), world renowned animator Bill Plympton (Cheatin'), Vincenzo Natali (Haunter, Splice, Cube), E.L. Katz (Cheap Thrills), [Continued ...] »

Trailer: Stephen McHattie Enters the Wild FX-Heavy World of Hellmouth!

1 September 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

The trailer for John Geddes' Hellmouth made its debut via Twitch this morning and I can honestly say I did not anticipate it having such an FX-heavy, '50-inspired vibe.

A nod to classic horror and fantasy, the film stars Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Haunter) as Charlie Baker, a dying grave keeper who's forced to take one final job. Baker goes on a dark descent through gothic landscapes, demonic worlds and medieval realms as he journeys to discover the secret behind a mysterious cemetery.

DVD Review – Haunter (2013)

14 July 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Haunter, 2013.

Directed by Vincenzo Natali.

Starring Abigail Breslin, Sarah Manninen, David Hewlett, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Michelle Nolden, Eleanor Zichy and Peter Outerbridge.

Synopsis:

The ghost of a teenager who died years ago reaches out to the land of the living in order to save someone from suffering her same fate.

In a genre slightly starved of creativity, Haunter deserves kudos for at the very least trying something new and original. With it’s Groundhog Day/Edge of Tomorrow-style narrative, director Vincenzo Natali (Splice) has certainly made a decent little thriller that for the first half at least does a respectable job despite it’s obvious budgetary constraints (the CGI fog is pretty bad), with some decent camerawork and a few genuine jumps. In that first thirty minutes, the film firmly puts you in guessing mode: why is Lisa in a time loop? Is she being punished? Is Lisa »

‘Haunter’ DVD Review

12 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Abigail BreslinStephen McHattie, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett, Sarah Manninen | Written by Brian King, Matthew Brian King | Directed by Vincenzo Natali

Often it feels like there are not enough ghost stories based horror films these days, but then when you think about it we’ve had Insidious, Sinister and The Conjuring just to name a few.  I’m not sure why I feel there needs to be more but this could be a sign that things need to be shaken up a bit.  Saying that though I’ll be reviewing Soulmate soon which is a good old-fashioned ghost story that gets so much right, so most importantly these films just need to be good.  Haunter looks to add a little something different to the mix with the question, do ghosts realise they are actually dead?

Haunter DVD Review

9 July 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Vincenzo Natali

Starring: Abigail Breslin, Peter Outerbridge, Michelle Nolden, Stephen McHattie, Peter DaCunha, Samantha Weinstein, Eleanor Zichy, David Hewlett,

Running Time: 97 Minutes

Certificate: 15

A horror version of Groundhog Day? “Surely not,” I hear you cry. The idea of rinse and repeat in the world of film, allowing for a protagonist to learn a valuable lesson and/or solve a mystery has recently been used in sci-fi thriller Source Code and sci-fi action caper Edge Of Tomorrow. It’s a complicated premise that is also simple to implement, much like time travel. Also like time travel, it is something that is very difficult to get correct as the film is instantly at risk from tripping over its feet. Haunter is thankfully a rather successful attempt at taking the idea of living the same day over and over again.

The first positive to say about the film is that it doesn’t muck about. »

More New Writers Tackle Ant-Man Screenplay

7 July 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It has a cast that includes Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, but Ant-Man apparently still doesn't have a screenplay that Marvel Studios are happy with. Following the departure of Edgar Wright over creative differences, and a subsequent pass by Adam McKay, the latest draft has been taken on by the writing team of Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.The pair landed themselves on the buzzy Black List for 2010, right after graduating from Nyu, with the screenplay for their still un-produced drama Die In A Gunfight. They've since had their horror pic Haunt (not to be confused with Vincenzo Natali's Haunter) brought to the screen with Harrison Gilbertson in the lead, and they've also been at work on Jonathan Levine's Legend and the developing Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot.Too many cooks, or necessary triage? Whatever's going on, Marvel and new director Peyton Reed are clearly finding Ant-Man a particularly tough nut to crack. »

New trailer released for horror movie Final Girl

5 June 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From photographer Tyler Shields comes Final Girl – a horror movie with the revenge motif of I Spit on Your Grave and Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass. A new trailer has been released which sees our hero taking down her would-be attackers in a game of cat and mouse.

No release date has been announced for the movie.

Loner Veronica is new to school, shy and vulnerable the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It’s only after they get her alone that she turns the tables on them, escaping and revealing she’s armed and knows how to defend herself. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training, and she’s chosen killing these boys as her final test. When the dust clears, Veronica will find out if she can be the final girl these boys ever have a chance to hurt. »

Abigail Breslin's 'Final Girl' Gets A New Trailer

4 June 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

If you were to check Abigail Breslin’s IMDb page, you would see that the young actress has spent a good bit of time in genre films.  She has Zombieland, The Call, Haunter, and the upcoming Maggie all on her resume.  You will also find a movie named Final Girl which filmed in 2012 and has been in post-production since March of 2013. It actually received an odd trailer that month, where director Tyler Shields showed the entire film in 1 minute.  That was the last we had seen of it.

That was until today. We now have a new, more traditional, trailer for this long gestating project and I have to say it has piqued my interest quite a bit.  

 

Synopsis:

A psychological thriller about a beautiful teen girl new to town who is lured out to the woods by a group of senior boys to be the victim in their final initiation. »

Phase 4 Films Gives Torment a VOD Date

27 May 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As far as modern day scream queens go, Ginger Snaps/Freddy vs. Jason star Katharine Isabelle is right up there at the top of the list, most recently making an impression on NBC's "Hannibal." Up next, she finds herself the victim of a horrifying home invasion in Torment, which has just been dated for Stateside release.

After playing at last October's Screamfest Horror Film Festival, Torment has been acquired by Phase 4 Films and will be given a VOD release on June 10th. Check out the creepy trailer below, which makes this one look like a home invasion flick worth being excited about!

Directed by Jordan Baker, the flick also stars Stephen McHattie, Robin Dunne (“Sanctuary”) and Peter DaCunha (Haunter).

Synopsis

When a family arrives at their remote cabin for a quiet getaway, they find their home vandalized, as the arrival of four psychotic intruders sets the stage for a harrowing life-or-death struggle. »

"Haunter" Fades Into The Background

3 April 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The horror film Haunter is not an origin story of that gaseous purple Pokemon but another take on the haunted house trope. Lisa (Abigail Breslin, reprising the role of emo teen that she started in August: Osage County) finds herself trapped in a Groundhog Day nightmare, reliving the same dreary 1980s Sunday whilst being the only one of her family to even notice that they’re trapped in a time loop. In fact, she’s so hyper-conscious of the daily repetitions that she becomes alarmed when certain things become altered.

Haunter review not scary enough to put the frighteners on

3 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The ghost of a serial killer inhabits Abigail Breslin in this supernatural nail-biter, but it's too derivative

Abigail Breslin takes the lead in this serviceable supernatural horror thriller as 15-year-old Lisa, the only one aware that she and her family are trapped in a monotonous Groundhog Day of missing laundry, macaroni cheese and Murder She Wrote. After realising there's a ghost in the house, or rather quite a few, she sets about solving the mystery of her family's time loop, and ends up taking on the evil spirit of a serial killer who once lived there. He is the Haunter (an unnerving Stephen McHattie), who can possess the living. But who is living and who is dead? Director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) explores some intriguing ideas but the pace lags, and the film itself becomes inhabited by the presence of The Amityville Horror, The Shining and The Others, to name a few. »

Ginger Snaps Team Comes Together for A Christmas Horror Story Anthology

20 March 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

There are a few Christmas, or holiday, themed horror anthologies in the works. Kevin Smith is tinkering around with one about Krampus, as previously reported. Now, producers Steven Hoban and Mark Smith (Ginger Snaps, Haunter, Splice). Hoban will direct a segment, as will Grant Harvey of Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning and Brett Sullivan (Orphan Black). Doug Taylor, Sarah Larsen, James Kee and Pascal Trottier are scripting four "interweaving tales." It sounds like we're going to get the Trick 'r Treat treatment applied to Christmas...

10 Hotly Anticipated SXSW Movies You Need To See In 2014

SXSW

For over two decades, fans of film, music, technology and gaming have flocked en mass to Austin, Texas for the South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival. Hailed by many as one of the best launching places around for indie film, SXSW has cultivated a reputation for giving emerging filmmakers a much-needed boost in the industry.

Last year’s festival saw the critically-acclaimed drama Short Term 12 win both the Grand Jury Narrative Feature Award and the Narrative Audience Award, and three notable films - Vincenzo Natali’s Haunter, E.L. Katz’s Cheap Thrills, and Joe Swanberg’s Drinking Buddies – received distribution deals.

This year again promises some more excellent finds, as well as the Us premiers of some highly anticipated films in a variety of genres. From pet projects by big-name directors to crowd-funded fan-darling revivals, here’s a look at 10 films making a splash at this year’s festival. »

Is Abigail Breslin This Generation’s Ultimate Final Girl?

11 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The “Known For” widget on a performer’s IMDb page isn’t perfect. It occasionally spits out results that are almost patently wrong, but the more current someone’s career is, the better and more spot-on they are. Case in point: Abigail Breslin, whose IMDb page tells us that she is “Known For” films like Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland, and Signs. Despite completely spacing that Breslin is the H2O-happy kiddo in Signs (a personal problem, surely), this is a fully agreeable assessment of the most popular and mainstream titles on her resume. And that would be fine if Breslin was doing those kind of films today – Little Ms. Sunshine? – but the former child star has recently started loading up her schedule with some very different fare. In short, it’s chockfull of horror titles, from the little-seen (Haunter) to the hotly anticipated (Maggie), establishing Breslin as an offbeat pick for the genre’s newest scream queen »
